Welcome to Conflict Kitchen’s first iteration, Kubideh Kitchen. Conflict Kitchen is a take-out restaurant that only serves cuisine from countries that the United States is in conflict with. The
food is served out of a take-out style storefront, which will rotate
identities every 4 months to highlight another country.  Each Conflict
Kitchen iteration will be augmented by events, performances, and
discussion about the the culture, politics, and issues at stake with
each county we focus on.

Kubideh Kitchen is an Iranian take-out restaurant that serves kubideh in freshly baked barbari bread with onion, mint, and basil. Developed in collaboration with members of the Pittsburgh Iranian community, the
sandwich is packaged in a custom-designed wrapper that includes
interviews with Iranians both in Pittsburgh and Iran on subjects ranging
from Iranian food and poetry to the current political turmoil.

Conflict Kitchen is a project by John PeñaJon Rubin, and Dawn
Weleski
and is funded by the Sprout Fund, Waffle Shop, and the
Center for the Arts in Society. Graphic design by Brett
Yasko
. Architectural design by Pablo
Garcia of POiNT
. Special thanks to Illah Nourbakhsh, Marti Louw,
Harrison Apple, Sara Faradji, and Courtney Wittekind, and all of those
from the Iranian community who supplied us with their opinions and
perceptions.
